It took 2 hours to cook one dish of pasta (wich was overcooked and had a bad taste) and a steak. When the steak finally arrived it was on a toast. Undercooked, bad seasoned and all in all terrible food. The waiter had to go...More

We were told to go for dinner. Crowded with locals. Food was fresh and excellent. I have already given the name to friends visiting Rome. I would go back without question!

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend. Its friendly, casual and not touristy. You should come prepared for an atypical dining experience - no menu and an extensive antipasto offering that they assume you want. We did and found the whole experience...More

This traditional restaurant has a horse racing theme and serves traditional Roman food. The owner Bruno Santopadre shows his love for the food they serve from the moment the antipasto arrive on the table. Service is excellent and the traditional environment very comfortable.

This Restaurant - your typical & authentic Roman restaurant with true local cuisine, was a huge disappointment! The cuisine got much worst than it used to be. Went there in January - felt we had to wear our winter coat in the restaurant that it...More

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
